Exhibition catalogue


The Forum Trust is the independent, self-financing, charitable organisation which manages the Forum Building. It also delivers a diverse programme of activities and is responsible for The Forum’s continued development, growth and innovation. Working with a broad range of partners – businesses, organisations and community groups – The Forum Trust also provides new experiences and opportunities both at the building and to the wider Norfolk community.


Design a catalogue for ‘Elements: Material Worlds’, the summer contemporary art exhibition presented in The Forum by the Norfolk Contemporary Arts society (NCAS). Following an approval of some sample spreads the design team had to create print ready artwork of all pages.


A total of six concepts were presented to The Forum Trust’s marketing team and Professor Keith Roberts, Chair of NCAS. The winning design featured a cover made up of vertical image strips of ten of the pieces featured in the exhibition. The strips gave a subtle glimpse of what the viewer would see at the exhibition, without giving too much away. Inside the catalogue the design of the pages was clean and contemporary; subtle shadows were used to bring the artwork off the page.
